A Man with a Suspended License Showed Up to a Virtual Court Hearing, While Driving

It isn’t often that a judge actually gets to witness someone committing a crime, in real time, while reviewing their case.

A 44-year-old man in Michigan named Corey Harris was attending a virtual court hearing earlier this month, after he’d previously been charged with driving with a suspended license.  That was back in October of last year, and his license is still suspended.

But Corey showed up on Zoom, while he was on his way to a doctor’s appointment.  And he was DRIVING.  He was oblivious, and asked for everyone to hold tight “for one second” while he parked.

Corey’s public defender asked for an adjournment, and the judge looked at his case.  He said, “Maybe I don’t understand something, he was just driving, and he doesn’t have a license, he’s suspended, and he [was] just driving?”

There was a pause, and the judge said, “I don’t even know why he would do that.”  He then revoked his bond, and ordered him to turn himself in.  Corey was seen in the video saying, “Oh my God.”

WXYZ.com has video.  I’ve watched this a dozen times.  It’s incredible.
